Sinking shop

Amsterdam buildings are built on piles because of the soft ground, but some houses are sinking nevertheless after all those hundred years, like this antique shop in Churchstreet.
See for interesting information about "Deep foundation" here

  1. Oh my! That looks a little scary. I wonder if there is anything that can be done to fix it!

  2. Business as usual.......this old tilting building suits it's purpose as an antiques shop.

    Looks like a very interesting shop!

  4. Yes, it's beginning to look a little out of kilter.

  5. CaT,
    Oh, that is still a mess, a never ending story. It is a shame for the city and the foreign visitors.
